As a relatively new bunny breed for the United States, the Lionhead rabbit has certainly gained fame quickly, and won the hearts of rabbit enthusiasts. Between looks and personality, it’s no wonder they are so popular.
These rabbits sport a wooly mane that is typically around two inches in length. This mane is where their name originates from. Their coat requires regular maintenance and should be brushed through at least every 2 to 3 days in order to avoid matting. Mats in the fur should always be readily addressed, as they can lead to intense discomfort.
Lionhead rabbits are very friendly and easily form bonds with their owners. However, they can be somewhat needy, and require lots of attention. They will enjoy toys but are also happy to simply play around with their human companions and then curl up in your lap afterwards.
